The 21st-Century Team Member Is a Leader of One: Themselves
Can anyone and everyone be a leader? Has the need ever been more urgent for more people to step into their own leadership?
I believe anyone and everyone can be a leader, and the need has never been more urgent for more of us to step into our own leadership.
In my most recent article for Cutter, I make the case for why and how for more people start or deepen their "inner-leader journey."
Cutter editor, Tim Lister, had this to say when he introduced the article:
Fox describes six areas of growth that are key to transformation: forward thinking, self leadership, inner awareness and intuition, inner-leader journey, listening and dialogue, and understanding how the mind works. He stresses that insight for new leadership resides not in the “other”; rather, it is accessible to everyone. By enhancing our ability to look and listen within, we shape our world from the inside out, he says.
